Event Description

Cars & Coffee Added To Upcoming Food Drive At BMW CCA Headquarters On November 21 Last week, you may have seen our announcement for the upcoming Food Drive at the BMW CCA National Headquarters on November 21 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Today, we are excited to announce the addition of a Cars & Coffee to this event—plus some special incentives—in efforts to get as many donations as possible! The Cars & Coffee will be open to the general public and all makes and models are welcome! We have a total capacity of 450 cars. There is no registration fee, but we kindly ask that all participants bring food donations to benefit the United Ministries’ food pantry. The primary Cars & Coffee parking area will be on the BMW CCA lawn with an overflow parking area at LeMans Karting across the street. Spectators are also welcome and general parking will be available behind the 4 Points Church. Everyone who makes a donation will be given a raffle ticket for a chance to win two (2) Track Meet seats (a value of $499 each) from the BMW Performance Center. The Track Meet offering is a half-day program that begins with lunch at 12 noon, with driving events until 4 p.m., and then a reception afterwards. Additional prizes will be awarded including GENESIS exhibit-themed apparel from the BMW CCA Foundation! You don’t have to be present to win. Just make sure to write your name, phone number, and email address on your raffle ticket stub. Everyone who makes a donation to the food pantry at the event will receive coupons for $5 off at the BMW CCA onsite merchandise tent, 20% off Le Mans Karting, and $5 off BMW CCA Foundation Museum admission. Food Donations For United Ministries Food Pantry Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a crisis, and has put many families in a tough financial spot, thus resulting in an even greater need for food donations during the holidays. However, we know the generosity of our BMW Car Club of America members and local enthusiast community can make a big difference! Here are some examples of needed goods: • Canned meats (beef stew, tuna, chili) • Canned fruit and veggies (green beans, peas, corn) • Dry goods like pasta, cereal, beans, peanut butter, powdered milk • Others: rice, noodles, mac & cheese • Of course, monetary donations are always welcome! For more info, please visit Blood Mobile will be On-Site: For anyone interested in helping in another way, the Blood Mobile will be on-site accepting blood donations. This could be another way of helping those in need during difficult times. Directions, Parking, and Food Drop-Off This event will be held at the BMW CCA Headquarters, located at 2350 Highway 101 South, Greer, SC 29651. All registered participants who wish to park in the Cars & Coffee on the lawn of the headquarters will need to enter from the far, southeast corner of the property from Highway 101. If you are coming from the direction of I-85, then you will drive past the main buildings until you see the blue, 10x10 BMW CCA tent on your right, at the far end of the field. That’s where you will turn in. If you are coming from the south and driving north on Highway 101, then you will make a left off Highway 101 onto the field before you get to the main buildings. We ask that all guests turn onto the field and drop off donations inside the club field, so we don't back up traffic on Hwy 101 S. There will be an additional donation drop-off station at LeMans Karting. When you present your food donations, you will be given the discount coupons, and a raffle ticket for a chance to win the BMW Performance Center Track Meet seats. Please note: In the event of rain, the Cars & Coffee portion of the event will be cancelled due to the parking being on grass. Volunteers We ask interested volunteers to contact our volunteer coordinator, BMW CCA Sandlapper Chapter President, Tom Lappin, at Health And Safety We will be observing social distancing guidelines from the CDC. For your safety and that of our friends and family, participants must wear a mask when they are outside and not able to socially distance. Due to the virus, general access to the building will not be available. There will be access to the bathrooms on the upper level of the main building. Wearing a mask is required for entry. Note: Bathrooms will close periodically for sanitation. We look forward to seeing you at the BMW CCA Headquarters, on Saturday, November 21, from 9 a.m. to 12:00 noon! Let’s help fill the shelves of the United Ministries’ food pantry and help our neighbors in the Greenville and Spartanburg area!
